What? It’s March already?! Ah, but time flies so fast, doesn’t it? Especially when you are swamped with work and wedding preparations like me. 😀 But before we go to this month’s Required Reading, let me first do a recap of last month’s challenge, which I am proud to say I have finished reading way before February ended.
- Cupidity: 50 Stupid Things People Do For Love And How To Avoid Them. This book is truly a gem. I’m glad I read it just before I get married. 🙂
- Angela’s Ashes. A bittersweet tale of childhood. The very first memoir I ever read. 🙂
So, did I ever accomplish anything for February, reading-wise? Actually, it’s not too difficult to determine the number of books I’ve read last month considering their very small number. A cursory check reveals that I have read, tan-tanaaannn… 3 books! 😀 Isn’t that awesome or what? Haha. At least I was able to finish all the 2 books in my February Required Reading list.
I love it that my required readings for the past month both got 5-star ratings from me! I was able to squeeze in A Thousand Country Roads after I was done with my required readings, and it was wonderful book to cap my February readings.
Now, let’s go to this month’s Required Reading list. I will not deviate from my usual number since January, which is 2 books, because I do not want to stress myself too much with readings now that it’s only a little more than 2 months before the wedding.
- Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh. I bought this book on a whim and I figured this would be a wonderful first-of-summer read. 🙂
- The Medusa Plot (39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers #1) by Gordon Korman. I got my copy of this book as a prize for a contest during the 1st Filipino Reader Conference last year. Since I want to read something light and easy this month, I figured this is the best time to read this book.
Both the books in my required reading this month are all kiddie books — perfect to jump start my summer! 🙂
